This course provides an in-depth understanding of the different Internet of Things (IoT) technologies involved in modern IoT scenarios and use cases, covering proprietary standards like Sigfox, LoRa, RPMA, Symphony Link, Weightless and cellular technologies like LTE-A and NB-IoT.
Connectivity technologies are covered holistically and touching on standardization, pros/cons, regulatory, security, eco-system and their application in use cases.
The impact of introducing IoT in a cellular network is covered in great detail, with explanation on the need for new hardware, interfaces and channels.
Due to critical data being conveyed in government, transport and critical infrastructure, security is the top concern for professionals when introducing IoT into networks.
This training also deconstructs the different security challenges at all levels of the IoT ecosystem, explaining the risks and standard solutions available.
This course will also examine the various architectures and best practices linked with the use cases for IoT in vertical industries. It examines the various benefits, business models, challenges faced by each industry and use cases.
